    Leap of Faith

    Hello Creatives! I wanted to share with you my latest instagram post. I used my Wreath Builder Stamp Brush Set #1 for Procreate to letter a quote I found on Pinterest.

    Take time to do what makes your soul happy.” I don’t know who it’s by but it rings so true for me right now that I wanted to letter it.

    As I’m trying to type out this post, my handsome, Creative Mews – Jaspurr has decided I need to pet him! So let me “Paws” for a minute or two for him! Sorry I couldn’t help myself there… if my husband should happen to read this he’d be rolling his eyes right now because he thinks my humor is corny! At least my kiddos still think I’m funny!

    Anyways back to this post! I took a big leap of faith this past year to get back to what makes my soul happy and that is just where I’m at now, blogging, designing, and crafting! It’s my happy place other than with my family.

    I also, just recently took another leap of faith and shared my design journey with all of my closest friends and family on my personal facebook. I’m always telling my kids they have to be brave, it’s okay to be scared about some things but they have to put on a brave face/smile and just do it. I needed to practice what I was preaching. So I too put on my brave face and shared it because it was just time. I feel so much better doing so.

    I will be back on the blog soon to share how I used another Wreath Builder Set. If you are interested in this set, you can click on my shop page for more information. It’s a great set and for this lettering piece, I only used brushes from the set.

    Take Care!

    XO,

    Oh, Anxiety!

    Hello Creatives!

    This is kind of a personal post so if you don’t want to hear about it that’s okay I’m not offended. I just started this blog, I don’t want to scare you guys away! My next post will be a fun tutorial I promise!

    If you already know me, you know, I’m a happy person. I love my family, my life, and I love to create but I struggle with anxiety.

    This week I’ve struggled with it a little bit to get a new post out to you. I was sick last week over Thanksgiving, and it’s just been hard to get back to it. I’ve started this blog/creative journey, and I know I cannot turn my back on it; it’s just too important to me and my family. I want to make them proud, especially my husband/bff.

    He told me he is proud of me already and I said I haven’t done anything significantly yet. He told me I’ve already done what I said I was going to do and more than what he thought. I’m at the start of something I’ve always wanted to do, I put myself out there. I need to stop being hard on myself and just move forward.

    I think the oldest and best advice out there is to, “just put yourself out there”.

    So, onward and, if you’ve read this through the end, thanks for listening!

    Xo,
